A second sexual grooming case has been uncovered in Rochdale, it has been reported.

Several men have been arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing a teenage girl over a a six-year period, the Manchester Evening News has reported.

It follows the conviction of nine men from Rochdale and Oldham who were jailed on Tuesday for running a child sexual exploitation ring.

The men had targeted vulnerable girls as young as 13.

The defendants were jailed from four to 19 years after being found guilty of offences including rape and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child.

During the trial, five girls gave evidence, but police believe there may have been up to 47 victims.

Chief Constable of Greater Manchester, Peter Fahy, said he hoped more victims of sexual abuse would come forward after the men were sentenced.
